Los Angeles, CA, US



As a young professional with a B.Arch, I am looking for the opportunity to work as an intern or junior designer. I would like to add to my experience in the profession so that I can gain new skills knowledge, and ultimately apply those in order to obtain licensure and establish my own career direction. In the future I would like to start my own practice.
